A group of Islamic scholars in Kano State has urged President Bola Tinubu to intervene in the ongoing controversy surrounding the throne of Emir of Kano.

The leader of the group, Malam Ibrahim Khalil, along with 20 others, made the call in a statement issued in Kano on Saturday.

The scholars said that Kano State is known for its peace and stability, in spite of its political complexities.


They, therefore ,urged the President to take necessary steps to prevent the situation from escalating into chaos.

They acknowledged the recent amendments to the Kano State Emirates Law and the ongoing legal challenges.

The scholars emphasised the need for peaceful resolution of the impasse and cooperation between the state and federal governments.

They expressed opposition to any measures that could lead to conflict and loss of lives, and urged both contending parties to resolve their differences through peaceful means.

They assured Tinubu that they would reach out to the contenders in a bid to promote peace in the state even as they prayed for peace and prosperity in the nation.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Kano State has witnessed a tensed atmosphere following the passage of law by the state House of Assembly which reinstated the deposed Emir, Sanusi Lamido.

The law also abolished new emirates created during the tenure of Dr Abudullahi Ganduje, the incumbent national chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) which rules at the federal level.
